Art as Human Experience

Alex Grey 

Art is innate to the human experience. It is a form of communication older than language. Through its practice/performance we can learn of the underlying schemata of the human mind. It reveals our inner nature, both as a reminder and as fulfillment of the soul. The soul is the ‘life’ that is in us, and life longs for itself. Art is human expression of ‘life’. It is a giving back of life to itself. Dance is the only form of art that satiates the body’s need to express life, and it is the force from which all art springs. It must always start from the body.

“I feel this”; that is the human experience.
